A third of the child population below the age of 20 are considered obese. The way Americans eat today and the lack of physical activity is leading to serious health risk that will continue to get worse as children age. Parents need help from the government to help make changes in the environment that children grow up in. such as, limiting the unhealthy advertisements targeted at children, creating safe places for children to place and exercise, and encouraging parents to prepare nutritious meals for their children as opposed to fast food (Childhood Obesity).

In the year 2012, Michelle Obama also created the “Let’s Move Campaign” in order to reduce childhood obesity, and to give students access to healthy food in their school lunches. The “Hunger-Free Kids Act” means that no student should go hungry, and the “Let’s Move Campaign” makes the lunches healthier. Unfortunately, due to the quality and quantity of the meals that the students now receive, more kids are refusing to eat school lunches, and remain hungry during school hours. Not only does this outrage students, it also infuriates parents, teachers and staff as well.

Daniel Weintraub argues in his article,”The Battle Against Fast Food Begins in the Home,” about who is to blame for children obesity. Weintraub is telling parents that they are the ones that can fix this problem, not the government, food companies, or the video-game manufacturers. I agree with Weintraub. How are children supposed to know how much is too much. The commercials don’t tell the kids not to eat too much of their product or they’ll get obese.
With no grocery stores or fresh markets around, their choices are limited to fast, low-quality take out or pre-packaged foods void of any nutritious value. Increasing access to whole, fresh foods is a major step in combatting the growing obesity and health crisis in these neighborhoods.
